One for the birds

One day during the ultra-cold snap, the Waxwings descended upon my neighborhood to snarf down the frozen berries from the mountain ash tree. But this wasn't just any flock, it was the flock from hell, the biggest group of birds I had ever seen in my life. They made the most amazing sound when they flew around, a deep whoossssshhhhh when ever they passed.

  1. Willie - These are great! What a photographic opportunity! The 3rd and the 5th are my favorites. Nice use of shutter speed and the rule of thirds.
